Our story so far

The award winning Smartdrive School of Motoring was originally formed via three driving instructors with over ten years instructing experience behind them in March 2002. We have seen our success grow with new instructors joining our ranks over the past four years. We originally set out with the goal of offering excellent value for money with a view to forming working relationships with our pupils, with our excellent fully serviced cars with Dual Controls and with our view to seeing instructing as a fun experience as well as a learning experience. To summarise we want you to have fun whilst you’re learning. We are based primarily in Luton and Dunstable but by all means give us a call if you live in the near surrounding areas.

We only use fully qualified instructors, they all have a large amount of experience in the field of driving instructing.  Our instructors at Smartdrive are able to give their pupils the full attention that is required to ensure that they learn to drive. What we do is structure the lessons to suit their lifestyle.

For example:

  • 1 Hour
  • 1 1/2 Hour
  • 2 Hour



Learning to drive with Tim was a really positive experience. I was quite a nervous student and he made me feel at ease straight away. His calm approach and light hearted nature gave me the encouragement I needed to drive with control and confidence. I think it is important that you feel comfortable with an instructor who enables you to drive safely but also challenges you to do your very best.


After previously failing my test with another driving school my confidence was low but Jim got my confidence back and made my knowledge and technique better. All my lessons were relaxed and enjoyable and I went on to pass my driving test comfortably. I have and will continue recommend Jim to anyone.
